Welcome to Farah Roberts, Ltd.

    Attorneys and Counselors at Law in Rocky River, OH.

    Estate Planning

    A large part of our practice is devoted to Estate Planning.  Estate Planning concerns arranging your affairs for both during your life, and upon your death.

    Business Services

    Many people are looking to take control of their own destiny and start their own business. We can guide you through the choice of entity process, and, once a decision is made, help you set up and organize your sole proprietorship, corporation, partnership, or limited liability company (LLC). 

    Medicaid Planning

    As the costs of long term skilled nursing care have continued to skyrocket, it has become more difficult, if not impossible for most families to absorb the cost of caring for their loved ones. Figuring out the best strategy to protect and preserve your assets, and then putting that plan into action is Medicaid Planning.

Helping You Navigate at Any Stage in Your Life or Business

Everyone, including businesses, has life cycles. Individuals are born and for the first 18 years of their lives are minors.  They mature into young adults and are single.  A bit later in life, they get married or enter into a long term relationship with someone.  The young couple may have children.  After what seems like an instant- or to some, an eternity - the kids are gone and they are empty nesters.  Then they may have a long and happy retirement, followed by slowing down, and eventually death.

A business is very much the same.  It starts out as the founder’s idea.  Then the business starts up, and with hard work and skill, it becomes viable.  As operations continue, it will grow.  Some will have greater growth, others will have lesser.  In its maturity, the business will chug along, providing its owners with a source of income.  At some point the business may come to an end, perhaps because of a change in the economy, or a change in market tastes.  Or maybe the business continues to be successful, but the owner wants to retire, or the owner dies.

The law impacts individuals and businesses in each stage of life, creating both opportunities and pitfalls.  We are here to help you navigate regardless of what stage you or your business is in.

Our Practice Areas

 

We are not an intergalactic monolithic law firm, able to provide all types of legal services to all people, or at least those with a certain level of wealth.  Being a small firm, our practice is limited to helping people in just certain areas of the law.

Probate

We do a lot of probate work. We help guide people through the process when a loved one dies. It is a difficult period of time for those who are left behind. We understand the probate process, and try to make the transfer of the decedent's assets as painless as possible. We also can counsel people if they think that a decedent's estate is not being properly administered.

Estate Planning

Hand-in-hand with probate work is estate planning. We explain to people the various ways of transferring property to their loved ones and friends, and suggest ways to best accomplish your goals. We will also talk about ways to make things easier in the event of a temporary or permanent incapacity. Admittedly, these are not the most pleasant of topics, but we try to make the process as informative and non-threatening as possible.

Business Services

As a transactional firm, we provide services to businesses, their owners, and those who want to start a business. We help existing businesses with their contractual needs, and help owners work out their arrangements when there are more than one owner, or when they want to sell their business. For someone wanting to start a new business, we can explain the various forms the new business can take, and what the advantages are of each.

LEARN MORE

Real Estate

Again, as a transactional firm, we provide services to people who want to buy, sell, lease, or rent real estate. We can guide those who want to sell their property without the benefit of a Realtor, draft or review purchase agreements, or leases or rental agreements.

Medicaid Planning

As the costs of long term skilled nursing care have continued to skyrocket, it has become more difficult, if not impossible for most families to absorb the cost of caring for their loved ones. Figuring out the best strategy to protect and preserve your assets, and then putting that plan into action is Medicaid Planning.

Tools

As a hammer and saw are tools used by a carpenter to construct a house, documents are the tools of an estate planner. As a number of different tools are used in carpentry, there are a number of documents used in estate planning. And as is said in construction and mechanics, you need to use the right tool for the right job.
